Grounded

Carpet, I’ve lain on you all these years

Yet you still hold me up

I’ve cried my anger unto you

Yet you still soak it up as if it never were

Through my highs and lows

You’ve seen it all.

My deepest darkest secrets are forever with you

You’ve never let go of me

No matter what I ‘m feeling

You’re still there

You’re not just any carpet

You’re the thing that helps me stand up

Why when I fall you’re there to catch me

Over and over again

You’ve kept me grounded

One step after the other

One foot in front of the other.
